USF Patents Memory Supplement

A dietary supplement that University of South Florida researchers have been working on for 10 years now has a U.S. patent, 83 Degrees Media reports.

According to results from one clinical trial, the compound of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories improved memory in older adults.

The supplement, being sold under the name NutraStem, is available at grocery stores in Florida and nationwide. As a dietary supplement, it’s not subject to regulation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
